lindsey graham saying he holds the president ultimately responsible for benghazi. and on the hannity program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia
. >> reporter: republican senator lindsey graham is pushing for a committee to investigate all of this, saying it's grown too vast and intertwined for individual committees to investigate separately. >> thank you. president obama is putting together his cabinet for a second term, including a new cia director. so far, hillary clinton has confirmed she's going to leave. as bill plante reports, republicans already are objecting to her potential replacement. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's exactly right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked ab
. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham said they want watergate-style hearings on benghazi and if you nominate susan rice to be secretary, they will do everything they can to stop that after her remarks on benghazi. >> i'm not going to comment on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, to besmirch her reputation
' agenda today: harsh criticism of u.n. ambassador susan rice by republican senators lindsay graham and john mccain. they attacked her for saying the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, had been a spontaneous outburst of muslim anger when officials already knew it was a terrorist attack. and they insisted they'd oppose having her replace hillary clinton, who's stepping down as secretary of state. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americs when it ems be that the story coming out of the administration-- and she's the point person-- is so disconnected from reality, i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better, and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> reporter: in response, the president was vehement in his defense of ambassador rice. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearanc
the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator linds graham had this to say on "face the nation." >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi d debacle. we need to get to the bottom of t the president has a lot of leeway with me and others when it comes to making appointments but i'm not going to promote somebody who i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. >> reporter: white house says that these objections are unfounded that she was simply repeating what intelligence agencies had told her and graham should be aware of her minimal role. massachusetts senator john kerry was also talked about for secretary of state but now his name is being mentioned as possibility for secretary of defense to replace leon panetta. john brennan, president of homeland security adviser could have the cia job if he wanted it we're told. but if he wants to retire the job is likely to go to general petraeus' number two, michael morell. charlie, norah? >> bill thanks. >>> congress gets back to work with a
graham, john mccain, rand paul now, and we haven't heard much from the rank and file in the house. and when you have a group of people that are safely ensconced in gerrymandered districts, there's not much motivation to come out in favor in something like immigration reform. so the senate might be talking about it, but people that matter like lamar smith who was the chair of the judiciary committee, hasn't made a statement. he's bringing back the word amnesty real quick. >> words that matter, you have bobby jindal, the governor of louisiana, i feel like we should get a plug every time we say politico, but he says governor jindal says we must not be the party that protects the rich so they get to teep their toys. we also had enough of this dumb-down conservatism. we need to thrust the intelligence of the american people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of voters. so i mean he didn't say amnesty but we saw the heated rhetoric to insight fear and get people fired up and ready to be against any kind of program for the 12 to 14 million people in this country right now who
$250,000 would go away. that was their baseline assumption. when you hear lindsey graham saying i'm ready to embrace that, he's saying for people above $250,000, your tax rates are going to go up. i think whatever happens, whether there's a little bargain, a grand bargain or no bargain at all, because of the shape of washington after the election, it's going to mean that the wealthy are going to pay more. whether they pay more because of a higher marginal rate or a higher average rate due to less deductions they can take, and that's going to be the first focus rather than cutting spending and cutting entit entitlements on day one. >> dan gross, thank you. >> happy to be here. >>> as 44 million get set to take planes, trains and automobiles for the holidays, our next guest says that security designed to protect us is doing more harm than good. he'll explains, next. watch this.

that kind of softness. who really in this country is pushing for extending it? lindsey graham, john mccain and the departing joe lieberman. i don't know of any other voices in the national political scene who are saying we can't leave. we have to do as long as it takes and stay there forever. there's no public support for it. >> because of this scandal, i just -- i mean, one of the things that you hear from veterans groups, that people outside the military i don't think seem all that comfortable talking about is the personal toll of these long deployments over multiple years on people's personal lives. young veterans bemoan the rate of divorce among veterans. how difficult it is to sustain a family and relationships. i don't know why we think it's easier for top commanders than your average infantry man trying to hold his family together. is this potentially -- we tend to defer to the military's own judgment on these things. we ask the commanders on the ground for their own opinion, but is this not another occasion for civilians to say, this is done in our name. the military isn't figh
